View Full Version : Still no word on BSD/Linux deds?

We're fast approaching 2 months since release here - and I've heard nothing. Anyone else hear anything, or is waiting on this a lost cause?

They were working on it and recently said it may come out with the 1.1 patch, which it didn't. But it's on its way

Yeah I think it's pretty much dead with linux. Most of the servers who were waiting for it have moved on. We still haven't gotten a remote admin tool so having dedicated binaries still doesnt help.

I guess their first plans after release were to fix that map-cycle
crash-problem with patch 1.1 and continue with their regular
developement afterwards. That would mean that there'll be a
linux server soon. However this theory is interfered by their
linux-annoucement .. tricky.

Another game rushed to market before properly debugged and fully flushed out. Developed for consoles, rushed port to PC, spend subsequent months just trying to fix the bugs instead of adding on much-promised added flexibility. Great formula...especially with all the newer games coming out to compete for attention....pfft....

f*ck em

I run a gameserver co and im tired of good games coming out without linux server files when the majority of game server providers run *nix for OS.

New game comes out - windows server guys get all the custoemrs - server for linux finally comes out and no ones playing the game anymore lol.

I wont run windows and i shouldnt have to run emulation just so i can get some new customers.

If you have the brains to code a game of this size how much longer would it take to finish it and provide linux binaries for ded server as well?

This is happening way too often in increasing frequency. I could go list the games but its pointless and im done venting. lol

Dice has also confirmed that BF2 will not have Linux binaries at launch. That just sucks real bad too.

Exactly what I mean regarding my above post. ;)
